Safeguarding SLED: Unveiling Dark Web Fraud Threats

By Editorial Team on Feb 21, 2024 1:47:34 PM

According to a report by the Identity Theft Resource Center, the government and education sectors accounted for 12.3% of all reported data breaches in 2020. Increased connectivity has benefitted state and local government and education (SLED) since its inception, increasing efficiency, information sharing, and more. As the internet has developed and threat actors become more savvy, it has introduced more risk to state and local organizations. The dark web, also known as the hidden internet, is a part of the internet that is not indexed by traditional search engines.

The Rise of Dual Ransomware Attacks

By Editorial Team on Jan 12, 2024 10:23:42 AM

In the ever-evolving landscape of cyber threats, a new type of attack has emerged: dual ransomware attacks. This malevolent technique involves cyber criminals launching not one, but two ransomware attacks on a single target. The first attack serves as a distraction, often relatively easy to detect, while the second attack remains hidden and wreaks havoc behind the scenes. This double-edged approach presents a significant challenge to organizations, as it requires them to not only identify and respond to the initial ransomware attack but also uncover the covert second attack. The rise of dual ransomware attacks highlights the need for organizations to bolster their cybersecurity defenses and adopt a multi-layered approach to protect against sophisticated and relentless threats.
